On behalf of the organisers, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend our “Youth for the Tropics” webinar and a regional workshop on 12 and 13 August 2020 respectively.

The webinar aims to create awareness among youth in the Tropics of the issues vital to them and to celebrate youths who have made valuable contributions in solving problems of the Tropics. It should serve as an inspiration as well as a rallying call to encourage youth participation in international discourse. The Webinar further aims to materialise ideas on the role of youth to lead and collaborate for a secure future of the Tropics.

Following the thought-provoking talks at our Youth for the Tropics webinar on 12 August, on 13 August we will explore one of the vehicles for change in the Tropics: social entrepreneurship.

There is growing evidence of the importance of the role of social entrepreneurship (SE) for long-term community resilience through reduction of poverty, vulnerability and disaster risk in the communities that are moving toward recovery and reconstruction.

Our regional workshop will serve as a platform for young social entrepreneurs to (1) understand funders requirements, (2) share experience and knowledge in building community resilience to disasters and climate change and (3) be spotlighted in the Register of Disaster Risk Reduction Social Entrepreneurs.
